I propose to rename the tag (currently 8 questions) to (currently nonexistent), because the questions with the tag are really about dynamic algorithms, that is, algorithms about certain objects with online updates.

(There was one closed question where the tag was used to mean dynamic programming. I modified this tag manually.)

I cannot use the existing system for creating a tag synonym (which would automatically merge the created tag synonym to the real tag) because the tag does not exist at this moment. Therefore, I would like to invoke the official interim procedure for doing retagging for this purpose. This means:

Score +4 or more of this meta post is interpreted as a consensus that the tag should be renamed to .

I do not think that the old tag should be a tag synonym after renaming, but I do not have a strong opinion about this.

  • $\begingroup$ @Kaveh: That is a good point. They refer to the same thing, but I do not know which is more widely recognized. $\endgroup$ Jun 12, 2012 at 14:23

    $\begingroup$ I'm ok with the tag saying dynamic algorithms but meaning both $\endgroup$ Jun 12, 2012 at 15:28

    $\begingroup$ we can also make dynamic-data-structures a synonym for the other one. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ For the record, this post reached score +4, and I flagged for moderator attention with the following message: “(1) This post has score +4. Please rename the tag [dynamic] to [dynamic-algorithms]. (2) I do not think that [dynamic] should be kept as a synonym, but I do not have a strong opinion about this.” $\endgroup$ Jun 15, 2012 at 0:52
